The curtain-raisers...
We're playing QPR in two behind-closed-doors friendlies in pre-season... and after that, they become our first fixture of the new season when we travel to Loftus Road on Saturday 5th August!

Our first fixture at Madejski Stadium comes in the Carabao Cup against Gillingham in the week that follows - date/time TBC - and then we host Fulham in our opening home league fixture on Saturday 12th August.

The Christmas period...
Burton, Bristol City, Barnsley and Birmingham - there's a bit of a theme over the festive period!

The Brewers visit on Saturday 23rd December, before back-to-back away trips to the Robins on Boxing Day and the Tykes on Saturday 30th December, and a visit from the Blues on New Year's Day.

Our last match at Madejski Stadium is scheduled for Saturday 28th April, when we welcome Ipswich Town as our visitors.  And this season's Inflatables Day takes place at the Cardiff City Stadium on Sunday 6th May, where our campaign ends.
